Birdcage Cottage in Deal, Kent is a unique seaside holiday home right in the heart of the Deal's conservation area, yards from the beach and the town centre. This pet friendly property is perfect for families, sleeping 5 people in 3 bedrooms with 2 bathrooms.
Prepare to be amazed as you step through the front door of Birdcage Cottage. The current owners have created something very rare which is not only a comfortable home, but a unique experience! Building on the ‘Birdcage’ name of the property, the owners have sourced a myriad of exotic bird-themed art and objects which have been tastefully placed throughout the house. The exotic feel has been further enhanced by the bright ‘Arsenic’ green colour scheme which has has been introduced into many of the rooms.
Solid wood floors, numerous original features and beautiful winding staircases, leave you in no doubt that you have walked through the door of a very special place which has been lovingly renovated to bring the house up-to-date yet still retains much of the original fabric of the building. Arranged over three floors, Birdcage Cottage would suit families, couples or a small group of friends.
*Please note - due to the steep staircases which have turns, the property would not suit those with mobility issues?
Entrance - Ground Floor
One step access leads you into the hallway and to your right is the cosy reception room furnished with soft sofas, beautiful artwork, rugs, a smart Apple TV with a built in DVD player, an Alexa and fully operational log burning stove.

Tucked in the corner is even an upright piano which we are told will soon be given the 'green' makeover!

We came as a small group to stay for New Years and had a great time. The house was perfectly located in the middle of Deal with short walks to get anywhere. The house is very comfortable and loved the wood burning stove. Just mind your heads! Great stay. Thanks. Ashley Fletcher, January 2020
We were lucky enough to be the first to stay at the Birdcage. What a lovely little cottage it is, It's location is great, perfectly situated near the beach and the high street. The finishing touches are well thought out and the decor is kooky and cool. We loved it! Noya, September 2019
